Cats on a plane: Inside a Hello Kitty flight – The Globe and Mail

Taiwan’s Eva Air offers up a complete Hello Kitty experience – from check-in to meals – based on the adorable cartoon kitten. It’s purr-fect for superfans. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist)

Hello Kitty fans will rejoice knowing that Eva Air has a Hello Kitty themed Airbus. I’m curious if the inside is all Sanrio Hello Kitty Styled as well, or if it’s just the outside. It would be creative to have the inside themed along the same magnitude a Disney cruise would be. Is there a premium for the Hello Kitty Themed planes? The routes are between Fukuoka, Narita, Sapporo , Incheon, and Hong Kong.

See the glaciers while they last | Travel | The Seattle Times

If You Go

Glacier National Park

Get details on the park, from lodging and ranger-led tours to trails and scenic drives, at www.nps.gov/glac

The park’s spectacular Going-to-the-Sun road, a 50-mile route that winds through the mountains, will not be open in its entirety until at least mid-June (or July some years) because of the heavy plowing needed. The park’s website has updates.

More information

Glacier Institute: Offers educational outings in the park, from birding to glacier hikes and more. www.glacierinstitute.org.

See the glaciers before they’re all gone. According to the article, there was once 150, and now 25. That’s a big drop in numbers. I’m lucky to have seen the glaciers in Norway, but would love to see the rest in the world. It’s beautiful to see the streaks of blue in the masses of ice.

2008745211 10 reasons to visit Vegas now | Travel | The Seattle Times

enlarge 10 reasons to visit Vegas now | Travel | The Seattle Times

/ THE WASHINGTON POST

The Vegas Strip is packed with with hotels, and some of the most luxurious ones are offering deals this spring.

Top 10 reasons to visit Las Vegas from the Seattletimes news. Las Vegas has the reputation as a gamblers haven, but over the years, they’ve established other forms of entertainment to woo customers. They forgot to mention that if you purchase a package, sometimes it’s a better deal. But I guess that depends on if you’re from the east coast. Most people on the west just drive. One thing I wish they would offer self serve apartments. Eating out for every meal adds a dent to the wallet and unwanted inches.

Finding the quiet side of Mexico’s Yucatán | Travel | The Seattle Times

If You Go

The Mayan coast

Where

Majahual is located in the Costa Maya, on the southeastern coast of Mexico near the border of Belize, on the western Caribbean Sea, six hours south of Cancún. The closest airport is in Chetumal, about 90 minutes away, with daily flights to and from Mexico City.

Costa Maya and Tulum

The town of Majahual in the Costa Maya area sounds like the perfect vacation destination for those who want to escape the crowds and just want a piece of paradise. I’m not a fan of long bus rides though, so might have to find something a bit closer to Cancun airport.

Hate dining solo? Site offers a solution – CNN.com

Andrea Banfi confesses that she’s skipped meals altogether to avoid eating alone. “If no colleagues or business partners are around, I just don’t eat. I can’t remember when I last had a meal out on my own,” says Banfi, head of records management and operations at Guinness World Records.

Invite for a Bite founder Cressida Howard hopes to make dining out easier for female solo travelers.

A new website called Invite For a Bite aims to change all that. The site serves as a sort of meeting place where women who hate supping solo can post invites and make plans to dine together.

Cressida Howard, of Gloucestershire, England, came up with the idea for “the site I wanted to join but couldn’t find.”

A website for women who dislike eating alone to find other people to dine with. It’s a good idea, although it may be difficult to find someone while traveling.

Thieves on a plane: How to protect your stuff | Travel | The Seattle Times

Thefts from airline luggage are rare, according to government figures, but that doesn’t ease the sting if it’s your vacation that’s ruined because of a stolen passport or jewelry.

Experts say most of the thefts that do occur could easily be prevented if travelers followed a few basic rules, starting with the most obvious one.

“Never pack valuables in luggage that you’re going to check,” said Bryan Saltzburg of travel website TripAdvisor.com. “Carry it on the plane with you, or ship it insured.”

Sometimes airline employees force travelers to check a carry-on bag, especially during peak travel periods such as holidays, when planes are crowded and overhead bins fill up quickly.

Although there have been some instances where people have had their valuables stolen off the trays when passing through security.
